Some speaker at a luncheon, who was supposed to be a tea expert told us any tea over a year old should be thrown out. Well, that was three or four years ago, and I finally threw out some bags of loose tea I had even back then when I heard her speak. It is just harder to use the loose tea, (when there is just me and no company) even though I have all these loose tea gadgets! And besides that she told us "red tea" wasn't real tea.
And most of it was red, and great flavors like carmel etc. I kept some. It tastes okay to me. Anyway just a tidbit. You finding your teas reminded me.
If you want to see past teaparties we have had, here are a couple of links
to ones I have scrapped:
Annual Christmas Tea
Tea for Two
